Chan Choi Lai is my brother-in -law. When we first met, he was working at his doctorate degree at the University of British Columbia.I was a teenager fresh out of high school. Naturally, he became my learned big brother. After graduation, with his newly wedded wife- my sister, Josephine , he returned to Hong Kong and took up a teaching post at HKU.
Education is his passion in life. He was more than a teacher. He was a friend, guardian and a friend to his students. In his long and illustrious career, he was totally committed to his ideals.To him, learning and search for knowledge is a never ending process.
Eventhough, his health has been deteriorating lately, his passing still came as a shock. May he Rest In Peace.
